Hospital X-ray machine





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Central America

Country: Guatemala

Location: Quetzaltenago

Total Budget: $80,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

The temporary Covid hospital in Quetzaltenango has an old x-ray machine which is not totally functional and at best could not handle the required volume of images. This proposal would provide a suitable new machine, including installation and training. The temporary hospital likely has at least a two year expected life, and may evolve into a permanent hospital. If it is closed, the x-ray machine would be moved to a different permanent hospital.

The local Rotary club is also a leading participant with a global grant to install 29 x-ray machines in clinics in Guatemala. They will supervise the acquisition of this machine.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
